[Nut-upsuser] Tripp lite SMART1000LCD

Just installed version 2.2.1 and have the same problem reported in this chain. I have Mandriva Linux 2008.1 with a Tripplite USB 500 no break. 

When I start the upsdrvctl I get the "Startup timer elapsed, continuing..." message and then a upsd can't connect error. I copied the file usbhid-ups from version 2.2.0 from another Mandriva system and everything works fine now. Its not permissions or other configuration stuff I believe. I can see from the changelog that changes where made to tripplite stuff from 2.2.0 to 2.2.1, maybe something went bad.

Saludos / Regards
